Artsmark Achieved!

We are very proud to announce that St. Philip’s RC has been awarded the Artsmark Gold award for a fantastic fourth time. The award is presented to schools who display a commitment to the arts and strive to utilise creativity at the heart of all learning. Pupils, parents and teachers have worked hard to achieve this fantastic award and we aim to continue to make the arts a major part of our school’s curriculum in the future.


School Fair Success


Last Saturday our school held its annual PTA led Summer Fair. Parents, pupils, teachers and parish members alike worked extra hard to contribute prizes, set-up and run stalls and perform in the Parish Centre.

We are extremely pleased to announce that the fair has raised an incredible £3174.37! Thank you to all those involved and we look forward to next year’s event.

Future ICT Experts?

Pupils from Miss Haigh’s Year 2 class have this week produced some outstanding work in ICT. They have created graphs, spreadsheets and databases as part of their science and numeracy work. Have a look at some of the photographs below – their work looks fantastic! Well done.

World Peace Flag Ceremony

Today our school celebrated a special service at church, the focus of which was ‘World Peace’. The celebration, which was meticulously planned by Miss Haigh and Miss Boylan, featured peace prayers written by all year groups, a flag procession, drama, signing and of course peace related hymns. The event was extremely special and enabled our pupils to demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of peace. Our school has received a ‘Peace Pole’ as a result and it will be erected in the playground in the near future…
